hi kao,

yes a frame is what we're erroneously calling a window. also  i am not using ido. 

to reiterate, the desired behavior was that if i have a file opened in one frame and if i move to a different frame and  C-x C-f the same file, it would show the file in a buffer in the new frame. 

 however, recently it changed and instead C-x C-f brings into focus the file in the previous frame rather than opening it in the new frame. 

my work computer still is on aquamacs 1.5 and the desired behavior still exists there.  so, i just spent a few minutes toying around with  custom-set-variables in  customizations.el and the behavior i desire seems to be given by the following 

 '(aquamacs-customization-version-id 100 t)

not sure what additional behavior this  produces and if there is a more simple line of code that could be added to produce (only) the same effect.

There are times it interferes with my ability to have two windows side-by-side looking at the same buffer for editing purposes. I generally wind up going to the buffer and splitting it, but my muscle memory doesn't run into problems like that when using emacs in a remote linux console.
> Just to be sure: what you are calling a window here is an emacs frame, right? In that case, are you guys using ido? On the customization group for ido there is an option called "Ido Default File Method" and by default it's "Raise frame if already visited" for me. I couldn't find a correspondent option for normal file finding.
